1 Q. The diagrams show one of Mendel s experiments. He bred pea plants. Mendel suggested that flower colour was controlled by inherited factors. Draw a ring around the correct answer to complete the following sentences. (a) The first generation plants show that the red factor is dominant. environmental. recessive. () (b) The second generation plants show that the white factor is dominant. environmental. recessive. () (c) What do we call inherited factors?... () Page of 3

2 (d) How are inherited factors passed from generation to generation?... () (Total 4 marks) Q2. (a) How many pairs of chromosomes are there in a body cell of a human baby? () (b) Place the following in order of size, starting with the smallest, by writing numbers 4 in the boxes underneath the words. () (c) For a baby to grow, its cells must develop in a number of ways. Explain how each of the following is part of the growth process of a baby. (i) Cell enlargement...

(2) (Total 8 marks) Page 2 of 3

3 Q3. (a) Sex cells are produced by meiosis. Describe what happens to the chromosomes when a cell divides by meiosis. (2) (b) Darwin s theory of natural selection depends on the fact that individual organisms within a species may show a wide range of variation. Explain how meiosis and sexual reproduction give rise to variation. (2) (c) Mutation may also give rise to variation. (i) What is meant by mutation? () (ii) Are all mutations harmful? Explain the reason for your answer. (2) (Total 7 marks) Page 3 of 3

4 Q4. Sometimes babies are born with extra fingers or toes as shown in the photograph. This condition is called polydactyly. CNRI / SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY The diagram shows the inheritance of polydactyly in a family. (a) Polydactyly is caused by a dominant allele, D. The recessive allele of the gene is represented by d.

5 (b) In this question you will be assessed on using good English, organising information clearly and using specialist terms where appropriate. Embryos can be screened for genetic disorders. Many people would favour the use of embryo screening for cystic fibrosis but not for polydactyly. Compare the issues involved in the use of embryo screening for cystic fibrosis and for polydactyly. You should use your knowledge and understanding of the process and the two conditions (6) (Total 0 marks) Page 5 of 3
